In a world without neatly defined network perimeters, lateral security—means detecting and mitigating threats from malicious actors who are already inside your network—is the new front in cybersecurity. To detect lateral threats, businesses need comprehensive visibility into what’s happening inside their IT estates, not just around them. They need to see every packet and every process at every endpoint.

At the upcoming RSA conference in San Franciso, we’ll be highlighting how VMware technologies like Project Northstar help organizations conquer lateral security threats. Keep reading for a sneak peek of what to expect from the VMware team at the event, and join us at RSA Conference from April 24-27 in San Francisco, VMware Booth#5644 to check out the latest innovations in Multi-cloud networking security demos and use-cases.

Lateral Movement is the New Cyber Battleground

VMware security strategy consists of five key pillars, and we’ll be showing off all of them at the RSA Conference:

  • Networking Security with NSX
  • Carbon Black XDR
  • Secure the Hybrid Workforce
  • VMware SASE and SD-WAN
  • Modern Apps Security

We’ll demonstrate these concepts at our booth by walking visitors through use cases and demos, allowing attendees to explore Lateral Security defense strategies for Multi-cloud.

Live Demo Highlights include:

  1. Enforce a Zero-Trust ransomware defense strategy with NSX Advanced Threat Prevention and VCDR Ransomware Recovery.
  2. Detect ransomware via strong lateral security using NSX Distributed Firewall, IDS/IPS, NSX Advanced Threat Prevention, and NSX Intelligence.
  3. Strengthen security across clouds with VMware Cloud on AWS and NSX Advanced Firewall (Distributed Firewall and IDS/IPS).
  4. Enforce context aware WAAP Security with NSX Advanced Load Balancer with Web Application Firewall (WAF) for Any App, Any Cloud.
  5. Modern Apps Security with Secure App IX (Tanzu Service Mesh), Antrea/NSX, Carbon Black Container, Tanzu Application Platform, and Aria Automation for Secure Clouds.
  6. Project Northstar: SaaS-based multi-cloud networking and security with Central Policy Management, Advanced Threat Prevention, and NSX Intelligence –delivered as a service:
    • Provide end-to-end security visibility and planning across clouds
    • Achieve consistent networking and security policies across clouds with centralized policy management and multi-VPC architecture
    • Correlate signals from various threat intelligence sources to quickly identify and mitigate threats across private and public clouds
